I specialize in anxiety, fear, worry, and stress. My motto is "manage your life not your anxiety" because too many people spend their lives trying to work around their fears, distract from their anxiety, and avoid scary body sensations. I understand because I was affected by an anxiety disorder that controlled my life for many years. Today, I am helping others get their lives back and start experiencing joy and calmness.

Do you relate to any of these thoughts or beliefs? I can’t do it. It’s too overwhelming. I feel stuck. It’s too hard. I feel crazy/I’m going crazy. I can’t get it right! What’s wrong with me?! What’s the point?? I’ve worked with a lot of women, and I hear these words all the time. It may seem like you’re alone right now, but you are so NOT. As women we’re quick to feel isolated---like there’s something wrong with us. I’m here to help you see you’re not alone. You’re not crazy. When we feel stuck, we start believe there’s no hope. Knowing something is off is incredibly powerful! It allows you to move towards change. You don’t have to stay stuck and there is HOPE for you. I can help!

Anxiety occurs when you have several different emotions that build up to the point where you become overwhelmed. I provide a particular kind of approach to anxiety that may not only help you to lower your anxiety threshold (leading to less anxiety and fewer panic attacks), but to identify the myriad feelings that make up your particular type of anxiety. Then, as we figure them out, understand them, and find new ways of expression, it may naturally help lower your anxiety level. We might also use certain stress management techniques that I developed when I taught stress management courses for several years.

Life can be overwhelming at times resulting in increased anxiety and stress. If you are experiencing difficulty sleeping, worrying constantly, and increased irritability, you can benefit from additional support. Talking about issues you are dealing with may be hard, but avoiding issues can be even more devastating. Lack of sleep and fearful thoughts often do not go away by themselves. Learning new techniques on how to cope with stress and anxiety can improve your relationships, your outlook on life, and your overall health and well being. Reaching out for help is not a weakness, it shows strength and willingness to learn skills to improve your life.

I have been working with anxiety and stress for many years and utilize somatic experiencing therapy in this work. Many of the symptoms of anxiety and stress are experienced in the body and it is important to incorporate these bodily experiences into the therapy process. Somatic experiencing helps the body to expand its tolerance of unpleasant anxiety sensations and increases its ability to experience positive emotional and physical states. This combined with traditional talk therapy is very effective for treating anxiety and stress.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 91101 - Nearby to Westmont.

One of the most effective treatments for anxiety is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which was developed about 30 years ago. The most common anxiety disorders are specific phobias. Other anxiety disorders include social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I will help you find the root cause of the anxiety and process the memory that feeds the current symptoms of worry and fear.

Anxiety Counselor

Lauren Stevenson, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 91108 - Nearby to Westmont.

My approach to the treatment of anxiety is to use the most effective intervention strategies possible. My treatment for anxiety (including panic disorder and OCD) utilizes exposure therapy, which works by helping a person confront a specific fear or memory while in a safe and supportive environment. The main goals of exposure therapy are to help my clients learn that by stopping the avoidance of what they fear, they actually become MORE comfortable and can reduce their anxiety to a substantial degree - all of which opens doors of hope and increases the potential to reach your desired goals with an improved quality of life.

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

Did you know that another word for anxiety is fear? Anxiety, by its very definition, is fear of the future. And,fear leads to stress. You become anxious when you fill your mind with thoughts that scare you. In other words, you make yourself anxious by the thoughts you tell yourself. That is actually very good news, because if you can make yourself anxious by what you think, you can learn to think differently and shoo that anxiety away. And, if you can identify the underlying cause of your anxiety too, that help prevent future anxious moments. With group therapy and/individual sessions, you can learn to identify what you fear and why you feel anxious and what to do about it.

Anxiety is an emotion about expectations, perfectionism and looking to the future. We hold anxiety in our bodies; we develop anxious behaviors and often disorders develop which involve panic. We can get caught up in the beliefs driven by society of pursuing happiness externally. Anxiety comes in many forms manifested from the conditioned belief of “not being good enough and seeking that place, the place of outer validation and acceptance.” Sometimes our beliefs are only habits and we think without them we would not know how to be in the world. To let go of these old beliefs would be frightening. Our first step is self-compassion. Compassion reminds us that we do belong, as surely as we have been lost in obtaining approval from others rather than...(view profile to read more)

The modern world we live in is full of amazing technological advancements and organizational wonders, but it is also more complex and demanding than ever before. The myriad competing demands of our lives, how busy we are, the continual pressure to do and be more creates enormous stress for all of us. This stress can escalate into anxiety and the added strain of these issues easily begins to short-circuit our ability to function at our best, to feel good, to maintain relationships and responsibilities. I can help you understand the internal and external forces creating these negative feelings, and together we can find strategies for minimizing stress and anxiety so you can feel better.

I handle anxiety and stress in many ways but a few ways are through TRAUMA counseling, I can use EMDR which is a way to handle almost any trauma, Brain Spotting, or Havening Touch. All these methods are gentle and can be used on children as well. I also love the 12 step models for using good boundaries and just sometimes learning how to say NO. I was trained by Pia Melody, a master in teaching her CoDependence method. I have also used Hypnosis in the past and can easily use Visualization for my clients. I always give homework for my clients to continue the work at home. Many clients don't know that after they leave my office their therapy keeps on working and may manifest in change!

At its core, anxiety and stress is fear. A stressed or anxious person might not think of it as the feeling of fear, but fear is what drives a person to worry and tense up. My clients have frequently told me how they cannot help it, that life just piles heavy responsibilities and problems onto their shoulders. This is true, that life hands us unthinkable challenges. That is exactly why you cannot afford to let anxiety and fear take over your mind--fear and worry cannot solve a single thing, but give you emotional suffering. I know how to help you better manage your stress and anxiety. Therapy does not take your problem away, but it helps you gain control over your stress and anxiety.
